Tech Day in North Georgia

Post by Toter »

Hey guys. Talked to Andy at EOM, thinking about doing a tech day at my place here in North Georgia. I am not a tech guru. Would need them to come and make this a viable tech day. I am out in the country on 21 acres and have a large house, 40x70 workshop, and a 36 ft.toyhauler to house people. Thinking spring time 2022. Would need someone with a tire changer. I have a compressor, and tunes in the workshop. Help me nail down a date and some plans for this. I am a day ride for Suches....etc, Cherohala Skyway, Dragon, Richard Russel, etc. I also have a pistol range with steel plates, 100 and 200 yard rifle range. Also easy access to dual sport rides on North Georgia forest roads. Talk to me guys. It's just me out here in God's country.
Oh, Renee is due for a valve check.

That's great Ed! I'll pencil in the date once it's secured. I'm sure it'll be a great time!

I'll be keeping an eye out for the date. Enough distance between you and Bob that two spring tech days would serve different crowds I think?

I can bring fork service tools, TB sync tools (carbtune) and a Garand.

I've been wishing there was a southern Tech day. I'll be keeping an eye out as well for the dates to transpire.

I can tell you that if you put it out there people will definitely show up. Even if the most technical thing we do is kick tires and drink beer.

Looking at the weekend of May 14-15, 2022. How's this look for a date? Need someone with a tire changer.

This is true but it's full of "still doing finishing touches to my house projects".

Heck I just sorta finished my driveway a few months ago.

Nah, I’ll let those guys with the hitch mounted Nomar do their thing. If someone is in the neighborhood and needs help, I can provide them assistance.

Sounds like Toter needs to buy hisself a Nomar Classic.

The best thing about hosting a tech day is it forces me to do a deep clean and organize annually. No more excuses Nate! You host one and I will be there!

How about if Toter hosts one in NGA? This is his thread…seems like threadshitting is a common occurrence in these here parts…

Loosen those bolts Wheatie! Not sure if Jwilly or Lumberg have tire machines. How about the date? Shitting on any other rides/plans? I'm retired and flexible. Got a nice buck the second day of the season! Need to add a couple of does Thanksgiving week!

Check with El Toro Joe regarding SEOR which is usually mid-May.
